FLG Calls Bullshit


FLG played A LOT of video games, and he always read. Sure, he failed out of college because of skiing and MarioKart, but he always read.

As Pong was after my time, let me just point out that if you buy a boy a gun -- a long gun or a shotgun -- you can take him out hunting.

And if he has the luck to shoot a talking rabbit, well, he won't really need books, will he?

With all the income that generates, he'll be able to abandon illiterate America for Cap Ferrat, where, in his extreme old age, he will be free to write what Professor Shirebourne of Merton College, Oxford will someday declare to be the greatest opening sentence in the history of the American novel:

“It was the afternoon of my eighty-first birthday, and I was in bed with my catamite when Ali announced that the archbishop had come to see me.”

All because a small book-less boy shot a talking rabbit.
